NAMM06: Tech 21 Announces Battery Operable MIDI Footcontroller

Tech 21have introduced a MIDI foot controller that they tell us “eliminates the intimidation and frustration of trying to decipher encyclopedia-sized owner’s manuals just so you can change a program.� The MIDI Moose should provide a no-brainer, super-simple way to access 128 patches.
In addition to being phantom power operable or utilizing an optional power supply (Tech 21 Model #DC2), the MIDI Moose is also battery operable, providing a minimum of 200 hours usage. Tech 21 tell us that it has a sophisticated battery-saving feature, which turns off the numerical display after 5 seconds. If you forget where you were, you just hit the footswitch of the individual patch that has remained lit, and it will wake up the display without making any program changes. On stage and in the studio, the large, non-glare LED display can be read from any angle, in daylight or darkness.
The MIDI Moose comes housed in a sleek aluminum chassis, measuring 17�l x 3.6�w x 1.5�h and has Up and Down footswitches to select groupings of five preset programs. There are individual silent-switching, custom actuators to instantly engage each program change directly within the selected grouping.

MSRP: $195.00.
